The Discover Film App features short films, some of which have been shortlisted for the Craghoppers Film Prize. Craghoppers partnered with Discover Film in 2018 to encourage, recognise and reward short filmmakers from across the world.
The Craghoppers Film Prize is awarded at The Discover Film Awards held in London every year, alongside other categories such as The Student Film Award and new for 2019, the Best Social Impact Award. The Best Social Impact Award focuses on short films which highlights social issues, such as the environment and mental health issues.
James McNamara, Sales Director said: “We are delighted to be working with Discover.film for the second year running, on what is set to be the best Discover Film Awards ever. The importance of short film in today’s fast-moving society is gathering momentum and it is exciting to be a part of it.”
“This year, we’ve launched the Best Social Impact Award category, where we will celebrate the work of Directors who take environmental, ethical or social topics head-on. This fits perfectly with our own ethos and the work we do through our Honesty Project.”
